I am a fibre artist based in Roscommon, Ireland. My inspiration comes from the landscapes and surroundings of my country studio.


I work in a variety of materials, paint, collage, mixed media - but my primary thought process is in fibres. I like to collect materials such as wool, rope, cotton, and twist and weave them together to form individual, original works of art.

“I am based in the West of Ireland in my idyllic studio in Roscommon.
The art of handwoven tapestry is many thousands of years old and, in that time the technique has remained virtually unchanged. What has changed and evolved over the centuries is the way in which the medium is used, the purity of its design and execution and the esteem it commands in society as a whole. Working in the medium of tapestry demands many days and months of solitary labour in the production of one piece, but it is this very thing that I love.”

Frances Crowe works from her studio in Grange, Co. Roscommon.
A graduate of NCAD, Frances has taken part in numerous exhibitions
both solo and in groups in her career.
